Listen: Ben Simmons, Cam Newton And Showtime Lakers discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"Was a game plan on the Showtime Lakers. Physical basketball disrupts highly skilled basketball. So. The pistons. They just made it ugly for Michael Jordan.

But I mean the way to beat the warriors has been the way to disrupt magic in the Showtime Lakers to beat Peyton Manning when he was with the colts with the patriots right physical with their wide receiver. That's that's just kind of the way to beat great teams as ugly the game make it really ugly and physical cheap fouls. Have a little dept have a couple begs you can hack guys. And I think it does to some degree work. Okay. Let's go to the Ben Simmons thing saying he's Gallo Cam Newton. Is that physically Cam Newton doesn't look like quarterbacks. Ben Simmons doesn't look like guards in my life outside of magic. They are both transformative talents. But they're both wildly inconsistent Simmons some nights and Cam some days, and I look at him. I think to myself because Simmons can't shoot the league's now become a shooting league and Cam's not a precision thrower. And that's now what the NFL is is if you wanna be consistent as a quarterback or basketball player, you gotta shoot you've gotta be able to. A you gotta own the current culture. If Ben can't shoot Doug, isn't this? What he's going to be all over the map. Yes. And no remember he's in his third year in the league his second year on a basketball playing"
